Resetting the Local Adjustment tools in Adobe Camera Raw

Adobe Camera Raw and DNGAdobe Photoshop

Command + Option + R on Mac (Control + Alt + R on Win) will reset the sliders for the Local Adjustment Tools in Adobe Camera Raw. This shortcut will work regardless of whether you have a local correction selected or not.  (If you don’t have one selected, it’ll simply reset the sliders to zero for the “next” correction that you create.  Note that in ACR, attempting to create an “empty” correction will result in a warning dialog.)

You can also reset the sliders by right-clicking the pin in the preview area and choosing “Reset Local Correction Settings” from the popup menu, or choose the same entry from the flyout menu in the local correction pane.

    When opening a new pic with Camera Raw filter, is there a single short cut that will reset all tabs to As Shot to replace all previous settings; more than only Reset Local Correct Settings (paint brush icon)?

      If you hold down the option/alt key the Cancel button in the lower right will change to Reset.
